Our Thoughts

Brian – The USC guys have flipped for me this week, they both played well but bore me. I’m just not as enamored with Bush as everyone else is. He’s probably the nation’s most dangerous player but he just doesn’t put up the stats to back it up, 110 rushing yards per game just doesn’t do it for me. Laurence Maroney is banging on the door after his outstanding performance against Purdue. I wanted to put him in this week but couldn’t find anyone of the five that are on there that didn’t belong. Leak had an impressive game against Kentucky but will need to impress me this weekend against a tough Alabama team to hold him off. Bye weeks for Young and Jacobs, Young has a decent test coming up with Texas’ Big XII opener versus Missouri. Jacobs is pretty much done playing real teams this season, so he’ll be racking up the passing yards and TD’s the rest of the way.

Matt – So Vince Young has a bye week yet somehow ESPN jumps Reggie in front of him. Doesn’t make sense to me. After watching Maroney play this past weekend, I would have to say that I think he is the best running back in the nation. His size and physical style of running will make him a sure bet in the pros. He also proved that he can carry the load, tallying up a career high 46 carries. You haven’t seen him play you should.
